Milwaukee A Leader In Green Roofs

NewsBuzz notes Milwaukee's national reputation for green roof construction.

I'm impressed with the partnership that created the latest project atop the Central library downtown - - the city, MMSD, WE Energy and other donors - - and the wide range of benefits these green roofs create: lower energy bills, reduced stormwater runoff, cleaner air.

And the jobs to build them.

Going green adds value to the economy and enhances the city. Hats off to all the players.
